RE: [xml-dev] Defining an XML vocabulary: specify syntax, semanti cs, and BEHAVIOR?

Right.  There is the XML default (whatever reader you use) and the
application default (whatever interpreter you use).  What Roger is on about
are the rules of the interpreters.  

Consider Mike Daconta's MVC model at XML.COM.  


From: bryan rasmussen [mailto:rasmussen.bryan@gmail.com] 
yes, but I was talking about a default handler for a particular
application, the default handler for XML in a message passing
application for XML that it doesn't understand but is still well
formed might be to put it in a central store of unrouted messages for
later retrieval, or the default handler for a presentation application
might be to apply generic presentational rules to unknown markup, for
example determining by structure that the unknown markup is most
likely meant to be represented as a List, Table, a document format, is
a database dump of some sort etc. etc.  Generic rules about XML above
the parsing rules can be determined, dependent on your application
